Coastal Fisheries Programme


Why are there areas where we can't go fishing? Why do we have size limits for certain fish or invertebrate species? Why do we ban certain types of fishing? These are some of the questions raised in this series of simple and educational posters targeting fishing communities and the general public. The objective is to give simple answers to the most commonly asked questions about the need for fishing rules and regulations, encourage action and commitment to sustainable fisheries. The posters, already available in English and Bislama, will be translated into several local languages.
